Logan Stott said it's pretty interesting that Arizona hired Rich Rodriguez in recent days and the 2013 offensive who committed to the Wildcats in early May wants to see how things play out over the next season before he makes any final decisions.
"He's a great coach," Stott said. "Behind Urban Meyer that's the best coach they could have hoped to hire.
"Next year is going to be an important year for me. I want to see what he does that season. I decided I'm not going to do anything until after that season is over. We'll see how he progresses the team which I'm sure they'll progress well."

Stott, a 6-foot-3, 300-pound prospect from St. George (Utah) Pine View, said he's confident Rodriguez can turn around Arizona's program.
Having that extra year of high school to see how things look is a bonus for Stott, who said he'd probably sign with another Pac-12 school if he was a senior this season because of all the changes at Arizona.
"They have a lot of horses who haven't quite been raced yet," Stott said. "At this point no matter who the coach was they'd be good next year but I want to see if he can give that extra little to make that team something.
"I'm hoping Arizona is a top 25 team next year which I'm confident they could be given the talent coming back and the players coming off their redshirt year. I have high hopes for them.
"If I didn't have that extra year I probably wouldn't sign with Arizona, I'd probably sign with someone else in the Pac-12."
Even though it's still early in his recruitment, Stott is receiving interest from lots of schools including Alabama, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Maryland, Nebraska, Purdue, USC, Utah State, Vanderbilt and Washington State.
